Application Abreviews Notes
Flow Cyt 1/200.
WB 1/10000 - 1/50000. Detects a band of approximately 70-75 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 52 kDa).
IP 1/10 - 1/100.
IHC-P 1/250 - 1/500. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ICC/IF 1/100 - 1/250.


  • Function

    Binds heme and transports it to the liver for breakdown and iron recovery, after which the free hemopexin returns to the circulation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the hemopexin family.
    Contains 5 hemopexin-like domains.
  • Post-translational

    N- and O-glycosylated. O-glycosylated with core 1 or possibly core 8 glycans.
  • Cellular localization

  • ab124935 staining Hemopexin in human liver tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.2% Triton X-100 in PBS and blocked with 5% milk for 30 minutes at room temperature; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in Tris pH 9.0. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in PBS) for 16 hours at 4°C. An undiluted Biotin-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

  • Flow cytometry analysis of HepG2 (Human hepatocellular carcinoma epithelial cell) cells labeling Hemopexin (red) with ab124935 at a 1/200 dilution. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 90% methanol. A goat anti-rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at a 1/2000 dilution. Black - Rabbit monoclonal IgG (Black) (ab172730). Blue (unlabeled control) - Cell without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody (Blue).
